Director of Pro Personnel Mark Dominik calls in the Bucs' fifth-round pick
Having drafted a tackle (Lance Nimmo) and a center (Austin King) in the fourth round of the NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers completed the offensive-line trifecta in the fifth round by snapping up Notre Dame G Sean Mahan.
Tampa Bay used the 168th overall selection on Mahan, who started the past two seasons for Notre Dame at left guard.
Like Nimmo and King, Mahan (6-3, 301) is considered a tough and intense performer. Last year at Notre Dame, he helped the Fighting Irish offense average 143.8 rushing yards per game.
The Buccaneers have just one pick remaining in the draft, a sixth-rounder that falls at number 205 overall. Tampa Bay will not pick in the seventh round.
Please return shortly for more information on Mahan, the newest Buccaneer.
